Sweet Enamel Pins + Mini Greetings from Hello! Lucky

Hello! Lucky Enamel Pretzel Pin

I am all about the enamel pin trend. I mean, who wouldn’t want a pin that looks like a teeny bottle of sriracha or a taco or a package of Smarties or a kitty cat? But this isn’t technically a paper trend, so I’ve refrained from talking about it here … until now.

Thankfully, Hello! Lucky has given me the excuse that I’ve been looking for because their enamel flair collection is the perfect pairing of paper and pin, with hand lettered and illustrated mini greetings that serve as the packaging for their awesome pin designs. They’re all totally cute, but I think I’m gonna need that pretzel pin. So fun!
